portrait of Moyka


From the forests of Norway's Hallingdal Valley, 23 year-old Monika Engeseth, known as Moyka, "dove into the synth world." Inspired by the complex electronic landscapes of Röyksopp, Highasakite, and AU-RORA, Moyka dilligently studied music production learning to create her own "mystical, synth-driven universe."

After just a few months working in the engine room of music production, Moyka emerged as a one-woman pop factory creating intense, electronic landscapes for her debut EP: "I wanted to do things myself, that was my main motivation," she says. "I never started out picturing what other people might say."
